which show is it? i have grabbed a few boards from various sites and am always looking for another sweet one - especially from 1980. I started seeing them on their Permanent Waves tour and loved them ever since. though i wholeheartedly agree that post-Moving Pictures, they basically got progressively more boring. Live shows remained a hell of alot of fun though :)

last Rush show i went to was Mansfield - the one where the pulled out the full version of 2112 as the first set closer. actually just downloaded the show (coffe has not kicked in so the year is a bit hazy at the moment) - great sound quality and a GREAT 20 minutes of 2112.

Re: Geddy. Rush played the "Big House on the Prairie" in Lakeland FL, followed by a day "off" then on to Miami. I was doing some undercover work for Cellar Door at the time and hooked the band up with some of the sticky nugs that killed Elvis. The following day they chartered a boat for a pleasure cruise and got too high to realize they were pasty white Canadians out in the Florida sun, and nearly burnt up so bad they almost had to cancel the Miami date.

Mr. Earl received another in a long stream of demerits for that one. Try to do something nice for an alien...

Hey Earl this reminds me of when me and my wife went to Cancun years ago. I'm not pigment challenged but she is. We go to the pool the first day and see a transluscent couple out at the pool and we ask them if they're from Alaska. No, Canada they say ( which might as well be the same). You probabably would have to be there but we all thought it was hillarious.

What were the guys in the band like? Cool?

I was always called into service to do "favors" for the promoters security and "hospitality" people in exchange for a block of tickets. At the time, Florida was a hotbed of paranoia with an overload of "Scarface" wannabees, so I rarely socialized in public. Most of the time I sold the tickets and went for a nice paid dinner. I didn't hear about what happened to the Rush boys until one of the tour security guys called after it was all over and the band was back in the cool white north.
